Hydrofluoric Acid 49% is used mainly in industrial applications; for glass etching, metal cleaning, microchip etching, electronic circuit cleaners, plastic production, production and purification of radioactive materials, and home rust removers. It is also used in chemical blends for stripping cadmium from various metal substrates, polishing superconducting radio frequency cavities to remove impurities and decrease surface roughness, and as a buffered chemical polish with current as electropolishing process.
Hydrofluoric Acid is one of the most dangerous and acutely toxic chemicals used. See our Bulletin, TDS, and SDS in the document section. Aqua Bond's team has been working with this material for over 10 years, in which we toll blend for many different customers because of the huge liability. We toll blend for customers from Aerospace to customers with CFIA approval for food plant equipment cleaning with Hydrofluoric acid in their formulation. There are many different product markets that Hydrofluoric Acid is required to be blended for final application. If you have a requirement and don't wish to have the liability of manufacturing and handling this acid in-house then Aqua Bond will be glad to handle your toll blending needs.
